Library and Archives Canada digitizes past issues of the Canada Gazette (1841-1997)
Library and Archives Canada commemorates the 170th anniversary of the Canada Gazette by making accessible the digitized back issues, from 1841 to 1997, on its website dedicated to this official publication. "Current issues of the Canada Gazette have been available to Canadians at most libraries and through subscription, and the Canada Gazette Directorate has a searchable database on its website of all issues since 1998," said Daniel J. Caron, Deputy Head and Librarian and Archivist of Canada. "However, an online database that includes all issues of the Canada Gazette, since 1841 and searchable by keyword, is a major achievement that allows even greater access to this very important resource"
